Didn't know it but apparently this is a 'thing' on TikTok. No seriously. https://thequietus.com/articles/29098-the-caretaker-tiktok-everywhere-at-the-end-of-time-interview  

New material.  [ -0º ]

Thanks everybody for the kind words and support for these releases.

 

I'd like to add a few notes here about the series for you. The first three stages are merely a set up for the final three stages.

The third stage release which is coming can be seen memory wise as being slightly post 'an empty bliss' with some self awareness still that there's a problem.

At the moment everything is still quite coherent and this continues through this stage with a lot of work previously heard but in altered forms.

The first three stages will also work if shuffled randomly.

 

Work is advanced now on Stage 4 with possible directions opening now for Stage 5. I can say that Stage 3 doesn't really hint at where Stage 4 will begin or go.

The final three stages are all post awareness stages so anything can and will happen, so they do stand separately from the first series of works.

The purpose of this series was always to get to work on these latter stages which if created out of the overall context would have made no sense at all.

 

I'm about to receive the Weirdcore video for Stage 2 which was delayed due to his Aphex Twin touring commitments so this will be uploaded in due course.

 

There is a 3CD set coming in October with the first three stages which features all new artwork from my comprade Ivan Seal.

The audio on this set is exactly the same as the vinyl and on the downloads.

 

There will be a one off performance too in London in December at The Barbican where Weirdcore will do visuals and I'll be there with Ivan and whisky so maybe see some of you there.

what's scary to me is how quickly we are at part 3.  I'm approaching my 40th, feeling a bit anxious about the whole thing and been having some short term memory issues.  caretaker is the perfect music to push me through it.  I hope :/

thanks James for the update. Always intrigued to see how your projects progress, and this one is fascinating (and troubling and emotional!). Barbican lineup looks interesting too...

- i keep hitting refresh on the "Everywhere at the end of time" Bandcamp page.

same, the release date has now changed to simply "September 2017" so might have been pushed ahead a bit!

 

edit: nevermind, it still says the vinyl is releasing today!.. guess is just a matter of time

      Limited time only. Issued on V/Vm Bandcamp.
      Made available again for a limited time due to the number of requests for it in full, this has not been remastered or altered in any way from its original 2006 upload and originally it was only available as an MP3 download. Update, immerse, remember, erase.
      Originally released in 2006. This is the full unedited and long unavailable 'The Death Of Rave' project. From its original press release. "An audio soup of half remembered rave anthems featuring all of the hits and many misses from the golden age of the Northern U.K. rave scene. From the run down Blackburn warehouses through to the M6 service stations enroute to Shelly's in Stoke the people came. The rave legacy no longer lives on, the corpse of rave bares no resemblance to those heady days in the late eighties and early nineties."

      I've been trying to find the original songs that were used by the Caretaker. Apart from what I found on whosampled.com and a Youtube channel there isn't much more. I'm the most interested in the ones on 'Everywhere at the end of time stage 2'. I would love to know what that last track is.
      I did find the first one, which is 'Love's old sweet song' by James Molloy. Discovered it while watching the movie Awakenings.
      Anyone else know something?

      evening all,
       
      ?? those who follow me on social media may have caught wind of this already, but I've taken it upon myself to curate a [what is now shaping up to be a massive] tribute album to Leyland Kirby in regards to his Caretaker project - I've already received an upwards of 30 quality submissions in a matter of a week - at this point, I'm thinking I'll cut it off at 72 tracks as a nod to Theoretically pure anterograde amnesia - figured now is the time to open up submissions to watmm artists.
       
      for those interested in contributing -- tracks would need to fall in line with the style of the Caretaker material (i.e. haunted ballroom music, dark ambient drones, noise, subdued sampling of 1920's and 1930's jazz, orchestral, and big band music - original compositions are welcome, as is any "Shining" fanfare (as long as it's not too 'disruptive').   track length should preferably not exceed 10 minutes - no intentional remixes of existing Caretaker tracks, no trap beats (you wouldn't think I'd have to say that, but seeing as how I received 3 already), i'd also suggest steering clear of sampling "Midnight, The Stars, And You" - email submissions (.wav) to [email protected] - general inquiries can be addressed there as well.   the loose deadline for now is August, might possibly release it in October, or at least some time after Stage 3 of Everywhere At The End Of Time has soaked in a bit - this should give everyone ample time to turn in tracks - right now I'm thinking this will be released via a one-off bandcamp page, sold digitally - that's not to say arrangements won't be made with a label, if it's a deemed a worthy venture (physical run, etc).   in the spirit of the subject matter, all digital proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association, which aims to advance research, and enhance care for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia.   hope to hear from some of you!   regards, Alex / Nmesh
